Biomedical Informatics, Emory University (Emory BMI) is once more in Google Summer of Code! Please find the project ideas from Emory University, here. We are using a Slack team (gsoc2016-bmi.slack.com) for communications among students and mentors.
My journey with GSoC since 2009 has been pretty interesting, from student to mentor to student to mentor. 2009 (Student/AbiWord) -> 2010 (Student/OMII-UK) -> 2011 (Mentor/AbiWord) -> 2012 (Mentor/AbiWord) -> 2013 (Mentor/AbiWord) -> 2014 (Student/EmoryBMI) -> 2015 (Student/EmoryBMI) -> 2016 (Mentor/EmoryBMI).
I have always enjoyed being a student as well as a mentor. However, I may not be able to become a student once more in the future, due to the new eligibility requirement introduced in the GSoC this year:
#GSoC veterans who have participated in @gsoc more than twice cannot reapply as a student.
What are the eligibility requirements for participation?
- You must be at least 18 years of age
- You must be a full or part-time student at an accredited university (or have been accepted as of April 22, 2016)
- You must be eligible to work in the country you will reside in during the program
- You have not already participated as a Student in GSoC more than twice
- You must reside in a country that is not currently embargoed by the United States. See Program Rules for more information.
